The affordable education loan option
New Delhi - At least three of the four men convicted on Tuesday of gang raping and murdering a student on a New Delhi bus last December will appeal the guilty verdicts, lawyers said on Tuesday.
VK Anand, defence lawyer for Mukesh Singh, told reporters outside the courtroom: “My client was simply driving the bus. He confessed fairly that he was driving the bus but he did not know what went on inside.”
AP Singh, defence lawyer for Akshay Thakur and Vinay Sharma, called the convictions “political” and said he would appeal on behalf of both of them.
“We will now go to the High Court with our appeal,” he told reporters. “This is a political conviction.”
The lawyer for the fourth convict, Pawan Gupta, could not be immediately reached for comment.
